About this listing
Lovely garden apartment tucked away on a lush residential hilltop. It's hard to believe, but you'd hardly know you're in the city while here, yet have easy access via public stairs or drivable streets all of this neighborhood's amenities.
Open floor plan, private deck, being tucked partially into the hillside keeps it cool, lovely views of lush garden foliage including eucalyptus, succulents, avocado & more. Huge shower, queen bed in bedroom & comfy pull out sofa in living area. Price includes 14% Transient Lodging Tax. This is a pet free, nonsmoking apartment.
Full kitchen with basic supplies like pots/pans, dishes, silverware, knives, cutting board, can opener, French press coffee maker, mircrowave, wifi, streaming channels via roku, private deck with BBQ, table/chairs, walk in closet & small bureau for clothes.
The apartment serves as our studio when not hosting visitors. Some wardrobes & dressers store our art supplies & are not for guest use.
Interaction with Guests
I work full time, and travel extensively when I'm not working, so most interaction will be via email & texts. I make sure the apartment is clean & ready for you upon check in. I'm happy to chat more if you catch me on my favorite spot on my deck-the hammock. Check in is self-guided, I will likely not be here to meet you. Detailed access instructions given on confirmation page.
I love the neighborhoods walk ability, unique architecture, friendly neighbors, picturesque views and interesting shops/ restaurants. Therefore, consideration of my neighbors is a must for guests while visiting. Please park and conduct yourselves with consideration in mind.
You can take a bus easily from sunset to all parts of LA, and there is a metro station 1.5 miles away. As you may have heard, most people here drive cars. I also like to walk extensively and ride my bike around. Disclosure- we live on top of a large hill & there are lots of stairs to navigate. This is not the property for those with difficulty managing hillside paths or staircases.
Other Things to Note
Street cleaning on Thursdays & Fridays impact parking. Read signs. First come, first served street parking only, but in my 20 years of living here, I've always found a spot. Late at night that spot will be more of a walk than earlier in the day. Guest bookings based on 30 day stay. Non-consecutive dates will be arranged as available if necessary.
No smoking or pets, please. We live above you and have tenants in the back bungalow, so no loud parties or music. Please don't plan to practice your amplified instruments here. Signed copy of our rules and regulations required before stay is confirmed. Extra fee for more than 2 occupants.
